Cushion Cut Diamonds: Embracing Elegance in Every Facet

Step into the world of timeless elegance with cushion cut diamonds, a cut that beautifully marries the vintage allure of old mine cuts with the brilliance of modern faceting. This comprehensive guide unfolds the enchanting story behind cushion cut diamonds, exploring their history, key features, popular settings, and the enduring charm that sets them apart.

The cushion cut, also known as the "pillow cut," traces its roots to the 19th century. Initially crafted as the old mine cut, cushion cuts gained popularity for their rounded corners and large facets that showcased the gem's natural radiance. Over time, this cut evolved into the cushion cut we cherish today, blending the romance of the past with contemporary brilliance.
